Honeycrisp Apples for Fresh Farms

Summer is coming to a close which leads people to start thinking warmer clothes,
Halloween, and Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING, but here at Fresh Farms, our
thoughts turn to Apple season! Specifically, Honeycrisp Apples grown by the
Columbia River in Wenatchee, Washington, the Apple Capital of the World!
Crisp and sweet with a slight tart flavor, the Honeycrisp is great for salads, baking,
cooking, or just eating as a snack!

Fresh Farms is delivering 10-pound boxes of Washington Honeycrisp Apples, for
just $25! Now you’re reading this and wondering, “what the heck do I do with ten
POUNDS of fresh, delicious, Honeycrisp Apples? Here’s a few of OUR favorite
recipes!

1) Carnival Caramel Apples
Kids of ALL ages love caramel apples! They’re always a hit during fall and
through Halloween, and with a simple five ingredient recipe, some popsicle
sticks, and Fresh Farms Honeycrisp Apples, your whole family can be
enjoying a caramel apple like you remember getting at the Fair in less than
an hour!

2) Homemade Slow Cooker Applesauce
Any type of apple can work with this recipe, but we’re sweet on our
Honeycrisp variety. It only takes a few minutes of prep time. Peel and cut a
few pounds of fresh apples into small pieces to help them cook down
faster, add water, lemon juice, and some “fall flavors” like cinnamon sticks,
star anise, or maybe clove or fresh ginger. Set it in the slow cooker for four
hours and enjoy all week as it is, on some ice cream or with pork chops!

3) Glazed Apple Fritters
Bring the doughnut shop home with you! A little more involved than most
of the recipes included here, but oh SO good as it may be trendier to bake
your doughnuts, but there really isn’t a substitute for deep-frying! Surprise
the family with this incredible treat for Sunday Brunch!

4) Crispy Turnovers with Apple, Bacon, and Caramelized Onions
Homemade brunch just got even better! Flaky puff pastry filled with crisp
bacon, sweet caramelized onions, fresh apples, and if you like, melty
cheese! The best part of this recipe? You can make them ahead and freeze
so you have them on hand to make at a moment’s notice!

5) Fresh Apple Salsa
After you’ve made the fritters and a pie or crisp, you’ve got a few apples
left and wonder what to do with them before they go brown. You can
admit it! This is a fresh, easy fresh salsa recipe with peppers, onions
cilantro, and yes, apples, that will have you wondering why you’d never
tried it before and only takes a few minutes to make!

6) Spiced Apple Cider
Whether you like it chilled, or prefer it warm while sitting by a fire or on a
hayride, our thoughts turn to apple cider at this time of year. With about
eight ingredients and a slow cooker, you can be enjoying a cup of tasty,
fresh apple cider in just a few hours!

7) Perfect Apple Crisp
Everyone seems to have an apple pie recipe that has been passed down
through the generations and it seems like many people simply don’t want
to stray from the tried and true. I actually prefer and apple crisp which
highlights the apple and is a LOT easier to make since you don’t have to
worry about messing up the important crust recipe of a pie!
These are just a few of our favorite apple recipes, but of course, there are literally
HUNDREDS of uses of fresh apples. Visit Fresh Farms online and order your fresh
Washington Honeycrisp Apples delivered to your city for $25 for a 10-pound box
and we’ll see you at the Original Farm-to-Family Truck from Fresh Farms!
